Default [Q] How do I apply this file into my Samsung GalaxyS4 that removes all the bloatware?

I have absolutely no background knowledge of anything in a smartphone so bear with me. My device is rooted though.


Ok you know how Samsung Galaxy S4 came with all those stock apps? I want to be able to delete all of them.

With some simple google searches I found this link:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2307355

I attempted some of these steps but I have absolutely, not even the slightest how to complete those steps that person has outlined.

Here are the steps:


Download the zip file "TrulyClean_v1.6_MEDIUM_SBROWSER" extract it.

1. Use the default script or edit the script after your taste. (see "hidden "tutorial above!)

2. Copy recovery.zip to phone.

3a. For best experience - do a full wipe, install a custom rom and then flash TrulyClean.zip.

3b. Script only removes apps in /system, so you have to uninstall any updated apps manually.

4. Flash in recovery (I use PhilZ Touch) & run script after every time you flash a new rom.

5. Enjoy and tell me what you think!


So I downloaded the zip file and extracted it, there were two files into: META-INF and busybox.

Ok so I put them in a folder on the desktop called recovery.

On step 2 I zip the folder I created, so now it's called recovery.zip

On step 3 I don't know anything beyond that, are there step by step tutorials with pictures that illustrate these steps?

Hello,
This is ROMCleaner - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2348256
It is a simple zip which you flash in recovery and also comes with a ROMCleaner_user.txt which you serves as the list of apps you want to delete.
Very easy to edit and use.

Also,

This is a great ready-to-flash script you can try if you are a little unsure of editing your own custom list.

Hi.
U do not need to extract the two files.
U only do this if u want to remove any system apps u don't want to remove in the update script.
Just copy the zip file in yr sdcard and flash in recovery.
That's it.

Cheers.

Wait, if your rooted. Why not just buy (yes buy, it's worth it) Titanium Backup or Rom Manager Pro and freeze, backup, and uninstall the apps you want removed. And then you have a good end user friendly GUI to work with.
